vinyl record cds in 4 page gatefold card walletsVinyl CDs in record-style sleeves with outer printed 4 page gatefold wallets

Our premium packaging option with outer opening gatefold wallets for an authentic vinyl LP look

These are a 4 page gatefold version of our premium vinyl CDs in record-style wallets that closely represent a traditional vinyl LP album in a 4 page gatefold case. The vinyl CD is packed into a card or paper (‘disco bag’ style) inner record-style wallet with a hole in it to see the disc artwork and this is then encased in an oversized printed outer 4 page gatefold wallet with the opening for removing the inner wallet at the outer edge of the inner right panel. The whole disc package is then finished and sealed with a cellophane wrap.

The 12cm vinyl-effect CDs are suitable for both singles and full albums and have a solid black, gold, silver, white, red, purple, orange or green ridged spiral running around the outside of the disc on the printed side, looking exactly like grooves in a record. The data sides of the discs then match the top colour of the discs for the black, silver, red, purple, orange and green discs (it is just the gold and white discs that can’t have matching colour data sides and they are a standard silver underneath).

These 12cm circular vinyl CDs have a capacity of 700MB and a 65mm full colour printed area in the centre of the disc within the vinyl effect.

The plain colour record-style inner card wallets are available in either bright gloss white, 100% recycled natural white with a matt finish, a thick textured brown Manila / kraft colour, gloss silver (Pantone 877 metallic), gloss gold (Pantone 872 metallic), gloss red (Pantone 032), gloss black, black matt paper or white matt paper similar to record ‘disco bags’ (see below for a picture of the colours). Alternatively we can also provide the record-style inner wallets with your own artwork printed on the front and reverse to give you six printed sides of artwork (with the four panels of the outer wallets included), if you need additional space for lyrics, credits or photographs.

Recycled card CD walletsRecycled card

If you would like your wallets printed using 100% recycled card stock then please add £0.10+VAT per unit to any of the above prices

Packaging options

The plain inner vinyl style card sleeves are available (shown left to right) in smooth white card, 100% recycled natural white with a matt finish, gloss silver (Pantone 877 metallic), gloss gold (Pantone 872 metallic), gloss red (Pantone 032), a thick solid matt black or a thick textured brown Manila / kraft colour. In addition, black matt paper or bright white matt paper thin inserts can be used (the black and white matt papers are closest to the traditional ‘disco bag’ paper inserts for vinyl records if going for authenticity, otherwise the card wallets add extra weight, rigidty and a premium feel to the package).

Laminate options for the wallets

As standard the gatefold wallets are supplied with no laminate coating applied, however for just £0.49+VAT per wallet for quantities up to 499 copies or £0.29+VAT per wallet for quantities over 500 copies, we can coat them in either a gloss or matt plastic laminate. The lamination makes the wallets far more durable, stronger, more resistant to liquids and a little more rigid. In the case of the gloss laminates the colours are enhanced with blacks looking deeper and colours richer overall. With matt lamination, finger prints do not show up at all, but colours are not quite as deep and appear a little lighter than either the uncoated or gloss options. If you wish to get your vinyl CD gatefold wallets laminated then please mention it to us when placing the order and let us know whether you would prefer matt or gloss.

Cellophane or shrink wrapping the CD wallets

If you would like your CDs in a clear wrap for a glossy protective finish that is ideal for retail environments or presentation purposes then please add £0.08+VAT per disc for either a shrink wrap or  a cellophane resealable wrap.

CD wallet thumbcutAdd a thumbcut…

If you would like a thumbcut added to the wallets for easier disc removal then we can easily do so. Please note that it does eat into the artwork space a little, but we have had a lot of requests for them, so thought we would add them as an option. Please add £0.05+VAT per unit that you would like the thumbcuts added to and please mention when ordering if you would like thumbcuts added to the CD wallets, otherwise they are provided with normal straight edges by default.

Vinyl CD artwork template downloads

The printed area on these vinyl-effect discs is 65mm in diameter with a 16.7mm diameter central hole. The artwork template that you download is only for the central printed area, the raised ridges and grooves with the vinyl effect will be automatically added outside of this area, so you don’t need to allow for them in your artwork:

Type of printing on the CDs

For quantities of fewer than 1000 discs we use a full colour high resolution laser print onto gloss or matt permanent labels that are then applied to the discs. The matt labels go very well with our recycled card packaging and have a similar slightly rough texture. For quantities of 1000 discs or more we can use a direct-to-disc full colour offset litho or silk screen print onto the discs although you can still go for labels if you prefer.

Do you need a barcode?

Barcode generation service for CDs and cassettes

If you will be selling your discs or cassettes through a retail store then you will probably need to register a unique barcode for your release and apply it to the rear outer artwork of your product to make it possible for them to sell via their product barcode scanner.

In Europe we use the EAN 13 barcode system and in North America the UPC system is used. We can register an EAN 13 barcode for you and embed the barcode graphic within your disc or cassette packaging artwork for just £12+VAT. The only information that we will require from you will be the name of the band/artist and the title of the release, then just leave a suitable space in your artwork and we will register the barcode and add it to your artwork for you, all for just £12+VAT.

For further information about barcodes, please read our barcode FAQs.
